Jazz

Jazz your night!

The Hat is a classical American jam-set bar of 40s-50s version. The bar uniqueness is in it’s nightly live jam-sessions, which are believed by the owners of the bar to be most interesting and lively thing in jazz.

We don’t have “special guests” here, as we don’t have gigs schedule. But if one asks, what will be tomorrow, he’ll get a firm & constant answer – “there will be jazz”!

We’re trying to fill that space in between a regular bar, where you just come to hang out, have a drink, meet people and a jazz club, where you go to enjoy live music.

We’re very happy, that we can give jazz musicians the opportunity to create music together. You’re always welcome to join the sessions, in coordination with a jam host at the place.

Our current Jam Hosts:

Jörn Henrich

Jam Host / Double-Bass / Germany
He has a double qualification, on the one hand, a PhD in Philosophy, and on the other, a professional double bass player. Jörn was a member of the Jazz Band of German Federal Foreign Office from 2005 until 2009 and performed on numerous national and international diplomatic events.

Eric Vaughn

Jam Host / Drums / USA
His early musical mentoring came from his father’s musical ally Teddy Adams, renown jazz bassist Ben Tucker, master pianist Joe Jones and Johnny O’Neal. Freddy Cole, American jazz singer and pianist, introduced Vaughn to the international scene while touring throughout the 1990’s.

Avi Albers Ben Chamo

Jam Host / Double-Bass / Israel
As a founder of Jazzy Berlin Community, he had a dream to take jazz out of the jazz clubs to more people and went about doing that in Berlin with his unique Jazz Guide. Since 2011, these have run at the Katerholzig, then the Neue Heimat and in 2016 at Klunkerkarnich and Anita Berber.
